Egeria Design Documentation

Egeria implements a set of open APIs, metadata type definitions, frameworks, connectors and interchange protocols to allow all types of tools and metadata repositories to share and exchange metadata.

It is essentially a comprehensive toolkit for integrating and distributing metadata between different tools and technologies. In addition, it has a multi-tenant platform that supports horizontal scale-out in Kubernetes and yet is light enough to run as an edge server on a Raspberry Pi. This platform is used to host the integration and metadata exchange capabilities along with open governance, discovery and access services to automate the collection, management and use of metadata across an enterprise.

The result is an enterprise catalog of data and IT resources that are transparently assessed, governed and consumed through many types of tools and technologies in order to deliver maximum value to the enterprise.

The open-metadata-implementation module provides the implementation of the Egeria platform and clients.

The packages are as follows:
